The decline in the military market has created a shift toward commercial businesses faster than expected and will continue because of established & new consumer applications such as personal vision and smartphones.

The faster shift toward commercial applications is due to military budget cuts and growing commercial markets

Uncooled infrared camera market experienced a sharp downturn in 2012: though total shipments slightly increased by + 1%, overall revenue fell by 12% to $1,824M. This steep fall was mainly due to the weakness of the military market which has been historically the main revenue generator.

Heavy cuts in the US military budget, resulting from federal budget sequestration and reduction of military operations had a massive impact on the global military market. US Department of Defense program delay consequences were notable because the US market represented more than 80% of the global military market in 2011. This sharp decrease was partly compensated by the commercial markets which grew by +11% in units due to the surveillance and thermography markets.

This shift toward commercial and higher volume markets will be confirmed in the 2013-2018 READ MORE >
